World Haemophilia Day

On 17 April, haemophilia communities worldwide mark World Haemophilia Day (WHD) to help raise awareness and understanding of haemophilia and other bleeding disorders. Together with these patient groups, Novo Nordisk also organises activities that emphasise the importance of haemophilia understanding and proper care.

Meet the HERO

Haemophilia has a huge impact on the physical, emotional and social well-being of people who live with the condition – and their carers. Their fight with haemophilia – to cope with everyday life, provide support or find the best treatment options – is nothing short of heroic. This World Haemophilia Day, we want to share and celebrate their stories.


Who is your HERO?

Join us on 17 April, in celebrating those who bring about change. Nominate your HERO and share their story using #MeetTheHERO and #WHD2014 on

 



Bolivia’s children with haemophilia deserves a chance

Of the estimated 1,200 people with haemophilia in Bolivia, only 150 have been diagnosed. The remaining 1,050 are likely to be children because without treatment few people with haemophilia reach adulthood. With better education and medical facilities, this can be changed.

Novo Nordisk Haemophilia Foundation raises funds in 2014 to support the establishment of a coagulation laboratory, a nationwide training programme in diagnosis and selfmanagement, and basic training sessions in haemophilia care for people with haemophilia, their families and the professionals who treat and care for them.

Speak out - create change

Novo Nordisk is proud to support the World Federation of Haemophilia (WFH) in their 2014 World Haemophilia Day campaign. Focus is on encouraging the global bleeding disorders community to Speak out. Create change. A particular effort is done to reach out to young members of the community so as to promote their participation and to develop strong leadership. WFH wants young members to feel inspired to assume key roles in building and supporting the bleeding disorders community.

Novo Nordisk participates in the WFH infographics social media campaign on Facebook leading up to World Haemophilia Day. Please find our contribution here.


About World Haemophilia Day
